Lowe is a consistently significant figure in country, rock, punk and new wave, and has left his signature on a range of records in his wake of forty years in the business.

In his interview this week, Nick talked about writing the song ‘Checkout Time’ and the opening line “I’m 61years old now, Lord I never thought I’d see 30’. “I was sitting in front of the TV one night just strumming the guitar and that little tune and those chords just came to me and I heard that line and it was kind of Johnny Cash,” he said. “I actually heard him singing it. “I’m 61 years old now”. So I wrote that song about my own mortality. It was a good line so I said “okay Johnny, if you insist I’m going this one”.
